Former Cricket umpire of England David Shepherd who was 68 years old died after a long battle with cancer. Shepherd left behind his long-time partner, Jenny, who he had just a year ago .

Shepherd was a renowned international umpire and much respected by the players. He officiated in 172 ODIs, including three consecutive World Cup finals, and 92 Tests between 1983 and 2005.

We will miss his legendary "nelson" antics.

David shepherd Test match was between West Indies and Pakistan in Kingston in June 2005.

In 2005 Shepherd was offered the opportunity to end his career with an Ashes Test at Lord’s – a gesture that would have needed the approval of the ICC board, as only neutral umpires have stood in Tests since 2002. Characteristically, he refused, saying that the whole thing would have created too much fuss.
